Your title is correct, it’s nobody’s business. 

…. So why are you even bothering to explain everything? Next time anyone asks about money, tell them that they don’t need to worry about that since you are paying for it and all they need to worry about is showing up and having a good time.

@waitingalongtime:  Don’t get sucked into those discussions. You already said it. What you spend is nobody’s business but your own.

“We’ve got that covered thanks.”

Parents are going to have expectations of their kids weddings no matter what. They’ve been picturing it since they first became parents probably. Plus everyone has their own way of doing things and their own opinions.  I think they forget it’s not theirs, and the most important thing is that you and him are happy and going to be married. Your site is beautiful. If you don’t love flowers, don’t have them. I agree with the PP, just tell them it’s taken care of and try to avoid talking about it if all they’re going to do is be critical.

@rosworms:  completely agree!!!

when I got to your being “40” I stopped right there. Not that age totally matters, when an adult is legal age and totally financially independent, etc., BUT I do believe with age comes clout, especially when youve got all your shizz together! Aint nobody’s beeswax. 

if there’s a next time, politely stop him in his tracks with “I’ve got it all under control and I’m sure youll have a wonderful time at our party” that’s it!

@waitingalongtime:  I would say stop trying to convince anyone. You guys have made the decision that are best for you and, quite honestly, it isn’t anyone else’s business. If it comes up, just change the topic, ignore him, or ask him how much he’s paying for something (like a car or house). And when he gets offended point out that he’s being just as rude by asking you guys about the wedding budget.

@waitingalongtime:  You waited until 42 for your FIRST wedding… You can have ANY wedding you want! You’re clearly not being crazy and impulsive about this or anything!

Also, I can’t imagine who is judging the financial decisions of a someone in their 40s!

I’m 23, DH is 28, and no one judged the 4K we spent on our 50 person wedding.

Your wedding is going to be amazing and very affordable. Congrats!
